ISO 50001 AND SUSTAINABLE ENERGY PLANNING: INTEGRATING A SUSTAINABLE ENERGY ACTION PLAN WITH AN ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM-TECHNICAL GUIDELINES
Policy paper and recommendations for EU policy makers: 50000&1 SEAPs project provided a coherent approach to integrating Energy Management Systems (EnMS) with SEAPs according to energy management standard such as ISO 50001and European Energy Award, as quality management certification system for municipalities committed to sustainable energy planning. It aimed to help municipalities overcome the barriers blocking institutionalisation of their action plans and reinforce internal structures and procedures for high-quality, long-term, energy policy and planning. Based on the results of the project, 50000&1SEAPs consortium has identified six main recommendations to ensure that sustainable approaches to local energy policy and planning are spread and strengthened further across Europe.
